Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to one of the greatest
organizations in the world! I was fortunate enough to start my career in
the PA in 1964. I entered as a Building and Grounds Attendant at the Bus
Terminal on 41st street and 8th Avenue.
The PA had training courses,
competitive exams and a policy of promoting from within that enabled me
to join the Airport Operations field. I spent the first 13 years of my
very successful aviation career starting as an Airport Operations agent.
Thanks to my training experiences, and a policy that let people learn,
grow and advance, I became Assistant Airport Operations Manager/
Terminal Manager working at both LaGuardia and Kennedy airports.
to my PA career I secured a position in Denver as Airport Operations
Manager, a position I held for 19 years before I retired. There were 105
applicants for this position and the 3 finalists were all PA airport
Through the course of my career I came to know how widely
respected and admired the PA was! People from the PA had a very positive
influence in aviation in places like Tucson, Milwaukee, Denver,
Louisville, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland, Dallas and
Saudi Arabia to name a few. Quite an accomplishment!
Thank you to one of the most admired, respected, and copied
organizations the world has ever known! You certainly did right by me. I
am proud to say I was an employee of Mother PONYA! Congratulations and
Happy Anniversary again!
